*Record breaking Earth-sized habitable-zone planetary system discovered Astronomers have for the first time ever found seven Earth like planets orbiting a single star. The discovery includes three planets in the host star’s habitable zone.

*New clues in the hunt for planet 9 Astronomers have some new clues further supporting the hypothesis of a mysterious yet to be discovered ninth planet at the edge of our solar system. The researchers studying a pair of small bodies in the outer solar system have found that they may once have been a binary asteroid which separated as a result of a past interaction with the hypothetical Planet Nine.

*Space tourists heading for the Moon SpaceX has announced plans to send two space tourists on a trip to the Moon. The flight – slated for late next year – will use the company’s new Dragon V2 capsule and Falcon Heavy launch vehicle.
